Free Vonage Service For Oscar Presenters and Performers

Vonage In Print News

Wired Report

March 3, 2005

By Staff

Fatigue was the word frequently heard around this year’s Oscars, according to an article in last week’s New York Times. And I could not agree more. The award shows have been squeezed into a one month time period, making it impossible to savor each one. And there are no longer surprises. How many times can you see the same person win the same award and not be fatigued by it?

This was one of the reasons why the irreverent Chris Rock was chosen to host and it was just about the best part of the whole show last Sunday night (with the exception of Joan and Melissa, of course). Despite the reviews which have been slamming him all week, I think he did an amazing job. He was hilarious when he interviewed black moviegoers who loved the Wayans brothers’ comedy 'White Chicks' but hadn't seen best-picture nominees, 'The Aviator' or 'Finding Neverland.' His Bush bashing jokes were brilliant. And his jab at Jude Law as a second-rank star was a breath of fresh air. The very significant Sean Penn who “claims” to hate being the center of the media’s attention, had no problem speaking up with the pompous comment that Jude Law 'is one of our finest actors,' before he announced Hilary Swank as best-actress winner for 'Million Dollar Baby.'

By the time the Oscars were presented, we had already seen Hilary Swank thank Clint Eastwood and her boxing trainer and Jamie Foxx win best-actor awards for 'Ray' and see him get teary when thanking his dead grandmother. The real disappointment was Aviator losing to Million Dollar Baby for best picture. This was a slap to the Harvey Weinstein at Miramax for Fahrenheit 911, I suppose, but Martin Scorsese will live, as will Harvey. We should all have such problems.

As it is, presenters and performers at this year's Oscar ceremony will receive a 'gift basket' - a bag of freebies - expected to have a value of around $150,000. Items included are a two-night stay at The Carlyle hotel in New York ($2,300),
a red leather case full of Shu Uemura cosmetics, including mink eyelashes ($600), a year's supply of Vonage broadband phone service ($500), a three-night stay for two at St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa in Dana Point, CA ($5,900), a dinner party at Morton's ($1,500), one day of services at Cornelia Day Resort in Manhattan ($3,500), an 18-inch baroque Tahitian pearl necklace from ($3,200), and a $10,000 package for a three-night stay at the Opus Hotel in Vancouver, three nights at the Four Seasons Resort in Whistler, ski lift passes, helicopter and limo transfers and spa treatments. Whew! I’ll opt to be a B-list actress and take the gift bag any day.

Overall, the fashions were disappointing this year. The gowns were drab, muted and not well fitted, “sausage casings,” as my dear friend from Houston called it. Gowns of beige, gold, yellow and some dreary earth tones were so out of synch with the red carpet glitz and glamour.

Especially bad was Natalie Portman in Lanvin’s taupe Greco Roman column of a gown. But thank god for Isaac Mizrahi who appeared on Oprah’s post awards show on Monday. His top two picks were Hilary Swank in that amazing form fitting number by Guy Laroche and Kate Winslet in an eggshell blue Badgley Mischka (Yes!). Annette Bening looked elegant in her black Armani gown, as did Selma Hayek in Prada. Overall, the jewelry was overpowering, especially some of the chandelier earrings and hair could have been much improved (Laura Linney and Scarlett Johansson). And Beyonce, hello, do we understand the meaning of over exposure? Sorry, she looked classy as hell on the red carpet with her man, Jay-Z, but one song would have been enough.

So awards season is over till the Emmy’s next September. Now we can all go back to work and catch up on the normal gossip of the day.
